Thirteen people were killed in a double car bomb attack in central Iraq on Wednesday evening, police said.
A US convoy in Baghdad came under attack
Up to 30 people were wounded in the attack outside a car dealer's premises in the town of Jbeila, near the mainly Shia city of Hilla, south of Baghdad.
Police said the first bomb was followed minutes later by a second, hitting many civilians gathered nearby.
Meanwhile two US soldiers were injured by a roadside bomb that exploded next to their convoy in east Baghdad.
The blast occurred at about 0730 (0330 GMT) in the Sadr City neighbourhood, AP reported.
It caused a US army Humvee to career off the road and into a canal, said a spokesman for Task Force Baghdad.
